Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, Reminds Nigerians That Their Choices In Picking Leaders In The Country Have Good And Bad Consequences, Tells The Youths Especially, To Make The Right Electoral Decisions In The 2023 General Elections, Or Be Ready For More Sufferings

The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has called on Nigerians to make the right electoral decisions, as the 2023 general elections approach, adding that, there are consequences that would follow the decisions they make in choosing the next Leaders in the country, Page 36 learnt.

Governor Makinde stated this in a tweet on Friday.

Recall, that in a series of tweets a day after the suspension of Twitter operations in Nigeria by the President Muhammadu Buhari Federal Government, he stated that Twitter is an avenue for citizens to share their opinions and give feedback on governance.

His statement on June 5, 2021, reads in part:

“As leaders, we should go beyond emotional reactions to issues, and think about how our actions will affect the people we lead, and our international ratings socially and economically.

“Twitter has become the platform for young people, and indeed all Nigerians to exercise their fundamental right to express and publish an opinion. They use the platform to complain, argue, and give feedback to the government and its Agencies who in turn, use these to improve policies.

“This is a fundamental point that should be kept in mind, as we debate the necessity of this suspension.”

However, after the Federal Government lifted the ban on Twitter operations in the country, Governor Makinde tweeted: “As I take down my pinned tweet, which showed my unequivocal stand against the #TwitterBan, which lasted 222 days, I would like to remind us all that our choices have consequences.

“With the 2023 elections around the corner, I hope we are prepared to make the right electoral choices.”
